Use the Second Fundamental Theorem of calculus combined with the Generalized Power Rule to evaluate the integral:
(integral from zero to pi/2) [(sin^2)3xcos3x(dx)]
I'm extremely lost in my calc class! Please help and show any work if possible!

I'm not sure what the "Second Fundamental Theorem of Calculus" is supposed to be. But the integral you mentioned looks like integral f(u) (du/dx) dx where du/dx is cos 3x In such a case, you can use the substitution rule, sometimes confusingly called the chain rule, which turns: integral (between x1 and x2) of f(u) (du/dx) dx into integral (between u1 and u2) of f(u) du where u is some function of x here if we have du/dx = cos 3x then u could be taken to be defined as u = sin 3x And your integral becomes: find the integral between sin(3*0) and sin(3*pi/2) of u^2 du which is much easier. (when you work this out, beware because the limits will look backwards: integral from a to b =  integral from b to a)
